Please be aware that SP2 is now available for Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 as well as the other server products.
The SP2 release improves the compatibility of the Office and SharePoint 2010 products with Windows 8, Internet Explorer 10, Office 2013, and SharePoint 2013. It also addresses security, stability, and performance and contains all the Cumulative Updates (CU)and Public Updates (PU) that have released since SP1, starting with the June 2011 CU and July 2011 PU and ending with the April 2013 CU and May 2013 PU.
SharePoint Server 2010 SP2
SharePoint Foundation 2010 SP2
*Unlikely the previous SP1 , if you have SharePoint Server 2010 installation you don’t need to install SharePoint Foundation 2010 SP2 first, SharePoint Server SP2 already contains this update.
Server Language Pack SP2
SharePoint Foundation 2010 Language Pack SP2
Project Server 2010 SP2
Search Server 2010 SP2
SharePoint Designer 2010 SP2
* It is recommended to install June 2013 CU before SP2. June 2013 CU might not correctly identify the SP2 baseline. If SP2 has already been installed and June CU does not install you need to wait for August CU which will correctly identify the SP2 baseline.
* our Service Packs are cumulative. You can install SP2 directly on RTM.
